for their kids. >> today, pentagon officials said furloughs among their civilian employees would not start until late april. as for daycare -- >> how do you back up tens of thousands of parents will search for child care immediately >> look, whether that search begins on march 1 or in the near future, the impact on the economy and on people's lives is real. >> indeed, defense officials also said today especially if it did not start right away, not only will the jobs be furloughed, all civilian pay will be cut by 20%. one reason white house aides say they have the upper hand over speaker john boehner and the conservatives seem to agree. boehner had an op-ed blasting the president for not coming up with a solution. the republican declared the cuts will be deep writing a week from now, a dramatic new federal policy is set to go in to effect that threatens the u.s. national security. thousands of jobs and more. conservative journalist byron york responding to the op-ed noting that boehner has uncomfortable position. adding why would boehner adopt the democratic description of the cut as deep when it
the pentagon is taking regarding the looming sequestration. more than 700,000 employees could be forced to take one day off a week without pay. that's equivalent to a 20% pay cut. the furlough notices would likely be sent out late next month. the furloughs would actually begin in late april. government workers may be forced to take furloughs, but thousands of nongovernment workers in our area will also feel the impact of sequestration. private businesses are being warned to peep prepare for the effect billions of dollars will have on their bottom lines. it could be a serious thing, as serious as the fiscal cliff which we narrowly avoided going over at the start of the year. >> now is not the time to panic but it's growing in concern. it seems to be clear that congress is making no move to solve the sequestration issue. >> congress and the white house have until next friday to get a deal done. of course, stay with news 4 for continuing coverage of the sequestration showdown as that march 1st deadline approaches. we will be here for you even when you can't watch. get the latest information at nbc
. but the second point i think our first of all the pentagon didn't show you any video. that's bad puerto rico. and the percentage of the weapons that were smart weapons and the first gulf war more than anything the iraqis had was remarkably small compared to the impression the pentagon gave in their military briefings where the only showed pictures of smart bombs and missiles and things flying through windows. there was a very tiny percentage of the actions actually expended. so i don't think that this was so much a revolution of military affairs as a vivid demonstration as you pointed out on just how proficient the united states was in waging a war especially against a less proficient adversary but it was a more philosophical way and that is and the ultimate goal of the conflict was a political goal so there for the military planning involves both smart and some weapons and they were designed with a traditional military conclusion which in truth wasn't revolutionary at all which was getting the enemy to do what we wanted. so i can't see the revolutionary military affairs. i am getting a sign
the new bridge and daycare money -- >> the pentagon has been very good, once they've been unleashed by the administration, for a long time the administration was saying let's not talk about this too much. now they can't talk about it much. and nobody is better at talking about it than the pentagon. because it's the largest organization in the world. they actually have to plan things. i'm told that in a lot of agencies around town, they don't know what to do. >> the planning is a mess. but the pentagon they're running wars. chris: let me go to the usual probability. the president gives in because he gets scared about national defense. he can't get the aircraft carrier into the persian gulf and we'll do the mix over again and cut some of the social spending. is that likely he'll do that? >> i think after you've gone past the sequester, and once the pain starts to hit, there will be some sort of negotiation. he will give a bit and i think the republicans will have to give a bit, too. you got democrats at the moment targeting half of the tea party members because precisely they think th
gulf and hunter claiming this is more about the drama than budget cuts. pentagon spokesman told fox news it was the right decision to make. that it was all about saving mup. had nothing to do with political drama. bret? >> bret: ed, yesterday, we had gene sperling on with the national economic council of advisors. i asked about the warn act, notices sent out 60 days in advance. letter sent out in september saying that the office of management and budget would cover the legal costs if the government were sued, if the companies were sued rather that the employees didn't get the notices and they would pick up all the legal cost. gene didn't have an answer about that. did the omb get back to us today? >> we were asking budget officials today about some of the issues. today they put out some paper that basically said look, it's not even clear the way the warn act is written that the layoff notices, the furlough notices have to go out, because there are evidents made to shut off the sequester. so it's not clear that the sequester will go forward, though a lot of people think it will. it's

kabul. for more we turn to pentagon correspondent jim miklaciewski. >> this order today shocked u.s. defense and military officials. they were taken totally by surprise. military officials also have strongly denied u.s. commandos condone or in any way took part in kidnapping, torture, or murders of afghan civilians or suspects. president karzai has occasionally in the past taken the u.s. military to task and, in part, to show the afghan people that he is in charge, but this province is a taliban stronghold, one of the hottest combat areas in afghanistan, so if karzai is playing politics here, it's an extremely dangerous game. now, president obama has already announced that 34,000 american troops, half the total american -- from afghanistan by the end of this year, but if u.s. forces are prevent from executing their mission, you may start to hear calls from washington to bring home all american forces sooner than planned. lester. >> thank you. >>> up next here tonight, the pope and his last sunday appearance. but we can still help you see your big picture. with the fidelity guided

it all down is now the hard right battle cry. slash spending, short the pentagon. crew up traffic control whatever raises the noise level, bashes the democrats and lowers hope. is this the tea party dream? is this john boehner's version of feeding time at the zoo, giving the crazies what they want so they will sit in their seats and behave? is this final payment to insanity the last vestige of what calm republicanism is ready to cough up? but how else can you explain the readiness of the gop leadership to let this fraken stein's monster, it doomsday machine, this sequestration go all out berserk? how else can we understand the party of lincoln doing such economic damage to the republic, such damage and moral to the people. democrat ed rendell and republican michael steele. gentlemen, i want to start with you, michael, because i know you will disagree with me and that's what this is about. i read a lot of good reporting today, not analysis, but good reporting from your side of the aisle, further right than you i believe, that says, great, let's have sequestration. let's short the pentagon.
throughout government. there's thought to be 25 million dollars in improper payments just in the pentagon and we haven't audited the pentagon because they say they're too big to be audited, but this is going on decade after decade. what i say is good leadership would be putting-- wouldn't be putting the policemen behind you and 95% of them paid by local taxes. if we have good leadership in the country we've known the sequester is coming for a year and why didn't we have a freeze where we didn't replace any federal workers, na would have saved 6 billion over the year we've been waiting for the sequester. >> greta: do you have any opposition to the suggestion we go into sequestration and allow the obama administration to move funds around to accommodate certain programs they think are the right ones to pay? >> yeah, there's a pay that the money can be moved around. for example, in the military they have 5.2 million they spent on gold fish, studying gold fish to see how democratic they were and if we could learn about democracy from gold fish. i would give the president the authority to go a

with a balanced approach to new revenue and necessary pentagon cuts and it creates jobs all over the country. it equalizes the cuts we've already made with revenue by closing tax loopholes for america's wealthiest individuals and corporations. but we shouldn't just sacrifice our economic recovery because republicans are unwilling to vote for one single penny and new revenue, new contributions from their billionaire friends and corporations. we have to look at what these cuts mean in the sequester. the sequester involves 70,000 children being kicked off of head start. no one in this chamber disagrees about the importance of head start. early childhood education is absolutely essential in creating the foundation for learning in children all over the world. and that's what head start is about. 70,000 american children being kicked off head start. that's what happens when you use a meat cleaver instead of a scalpel. we're talking about more than a million kids who will see their schools lose education funding. we're talking about emergency responders who will lose their jobs, meaning slower resp
